The AR and VR experience area included:
- Eric’s ARientation cards (available at here)
Eric has two sets of cards, one is in A4 size and the other in A6.
Students were asked to install BlippAR on their smartphones to be able to scan the A4 size ARientation cards, which were hung on the wall. Some codes were overlayed in an image or video format on the cards to be used to unlock a cipher with mission accomplished signs inside.
Eric also demoed some of the A4 size ARientation cards by using a special camera. A number of the cards were overlayed with some keywords such as change, better world, and tackle inequality, and we took some screenshots while I was trying to scan them.
- Google Cardboard, which is a piece of cardboard that turns a smartphone into a VR headset
- Cameras to take 360 degree photos
- HTC Vive, which is a virtual reality headset developed by HTC and Valve Corporation
Students tried HTC Vive by exploring some Google Earth VR demos, which provided opportunities for practicing English through explaining what they could see in the virtual world.
Eric is thinking of mixing AR and VR for his future projects and demos, and I am very much looking forward to it! 🙂
